Band treatment of hemorrhoids
Rubber band ligation treatment can be applied for internal hemorrhoids Stage II and III
The band cuts off the blood supply of the haemorrhoid causing it to fall off and pass out of the body together with the band when the Patient goes to the toilet with minimal or no discharge of mucus/blood. This usually takes 2 to 3 days. The small scar developing at the site of the fallen haemorrhoid prevents recurrence of the pile on that spot. Treatment of one to three sectors of haemorrhoids are usually sufficient.
Up to two sectors can be treated in one go. When the banded haemorrhoid falls off can the Proctologist determine where to and how many further bands to place for the perfect result. Depending on the stage of the disease and on anatomic factors, one to three sometimes more treatments are necessary. Following the completion of the treatment patients are asked to return for a check up in 1-2 years to ensure long-term cure.
